England have been grouped with defending champions Sri Lanka for the 2016 World Twenty20 in India.
Eoin Morgan's men will also face South Africa, West Indies and a qualifier in the second group stage of the tournament which begins on 8 March.
Ireland and Scotland enter at the first group stage, but have been drawn in separate pools of four teams.
In the women's competition, England are in the same group as India, and Ireland will face champions Australia.
Pakistan, who had threatened to boycott the tournament over a delay in agreeing a bilateral series with India, have been placed in the same group as their bitter rivals.
